Olivia Turner

Olivia  Turner’s  interdisciplinary  practice  encompasses  sculpture,  video,  performance  and drawing.  Her  work  is  deeply  rooted  within  the  idea  of  knowledge  gained  through  making. She  explores  the  communicative,  pre-linguistic  capacity  and  material  memory  of  clay,  and how it manifests itself in processes and objects. She is hugely influenced by her research with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). Her most recent exhibitions include ‘Degree Show 2016,’ Newcastle University; ‘DECAPOD –  AirSpace  Gallery  10th  Birthday,’  AirSpace  Gallery,  Stoke-on-Trent;  and ‘Circus  Between Worlds,’  Glasgow  International.  Olivia  Turner  is  founder  of  the interdisciplinary  research group Anatomy of Site, funded by Newcastle Institute of Creative Arts. She is also a member of the international collective Topographies of the Obsolete.
